Updated - My Last Aquarium, to go (Eventually) – Reprieve

You may have read my article My Last Aquarium, to go (Eventually) published on 6th April 2016.  At that time I had 6 clown loach, 2 harlequins and 2 mountain minnows, and was thinking about not getting any more fish.

In January (2017), the only surviving fish left were, 1 Harlequin, 1 mountain minnow and 4 clown loach, so, I started to think about getting rid of the aquarium, decisions had to be made. 

WELL:

 

On Thursday 5th January I decided to get some more fish, and so on Friday 6th, I bought 6 mollies and 6 tiger barbs with a few more plants, so now there are 18 fish, not a lot but enough to see some activity and the tiger barbs and mollies will grow bigger and possibly breed. 

 

 

Mollies, tiger barbs and a clown loach also known as tiger botia. If you are troubled with snails in your tank clown loach will eat them for you.

 

The tiger barbs on the left with a posing clown loach on the right but I couldn't get it to smile.  The other loaches are inside the logs.

 

On the left the sole surviving harlequin with four mollies, five tiger barbs and hiding behind the plants is a clown loach.

 

Four mollies and six tiger barbs.

Here you can see the tiger barbs feeding on the blood worms.

I have just noticed that there are 7 mollies, even though I only paid for 6 so that makes the total number of fish in the tank 19, not 18.

So how long is the reprieve for?

To finish with a variety.

 

I have decided that this aquarium is here to stay for quite a while yet.
